Krabi, Thailand

Diving Information

Dive Season

Krabi has two predominant seasons. One is the hot season and the other the wet season or the Rainy season, but we have to be more detailed.
Hot season is from January to April and this is followed by the so called rain season. However rain occurs mainly in the evening hours from May to December. Unfortunately most travel guides and magazines available anywhere or on the internet are simply calling it rain season ( monsoon season) but do miss to specify at what time in fact it is really raining. This is unfortunate for the whole of Thailand. Rain Season is very different within the Kingdom of Thailand. If it comes to the south of Thailand( Krabi, Phuket, Koh Samui, Kao Lak etc. ) major rains do happen between the end of October and mid of December. But as we said earlier, it is raining mostly in the evening hours while on the day time there is a change of sun and cloudy skies.
In general it is very pleasant if a rain shower is cooling of the heat and moisture in the air.
Most rain does occur in the month of November where one could face 2-3 days without sunshine.

Getting There

There are two ways to reach Krabi by road. One route is the Phuket– Koh Phi Phi – Krabi and the other one is via Surat Thani or Nakhon Si Thammarat. The second one from the eastern coast of the peninsula.

There is regular songtao service between Krabi town and Ao nang. The white songtao takes 30 minutes for a trip. Chartering a country boat is more interesting. It is only marginally expensive.
